I am a graduate student and a teacher of Arabic who started learning Arabic at age 23. I have no Arab or Middle Eastern blood in my ancestry at all. My Arabic proficiency and pronunciation are not perfect, though I have been rated ACTFL superior more than once. This podcast is meant to be explicit homework help. This is not how I teach in class. I do not use so much English or teach so much grammar in class. This is an external resource to help you finish your homework and then use your time to learn Arabic in your own style online, with books, or with friends. Get your homework done and then go the extra mile using outside resources to help you master Arabic. Al-Kitaab alone is not enough. Comments or questions may be sent to email@example.com. The reason I am not listing my name is because I know these podcasts and my Arabic are imperfect to some extent. I have to get a job eventually and I am afraid some academics may disapprove of my technique... and I am shy. I would like to thank Georgetown University Press for giving me permission to make these podcasts. I hope this helps. A full list is available at http://ustaazj.googlepages.com/home.
